DUBAI – Pakistan-born British boxer and his wife Faryal Makhdoom have been forced to rush to a Dubai police station after they fell prey of worldwide cyber attackers.
Khan took to his Twitter to warn people that have his personal phone number to ignore any messages or calls.
Amir warned his fans on social media: “To those who have my mobile number. Since 2pm UK time my sim ending with 000 number has been hacked. Please do not respond to messages.”
His wife, Faryal Makhdoom Khan also posted to her Snapchat saying how the pair are at the police station reporting that Khan’s phone had been targeted.
She said: “My husbands phone has gotten hacked and there a lot of personal information on the phone.
“So this sick person was messaging me from my husband’s phone whilst he was in meetings, pretending to be him and I thought it was my husband.
“We are going to trace who’s behind this all, so that’s why I’m at the police station.
“I’m OK and Amir’s OK, but we’re just going to find out who’s trying to do this, who’s got in through the phone and his Snapchat.”
Faryal, 25, last December accused her husband’s family of “bullying” her and claims her “evil, hating sister-in-law” even tried to HIT her.
